The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 21

The Good: 
I flew out for an amazing whirlwind 27ish hours in Las Vegas for a very special bar mitzvah. It was a fast and furious, but it was good to get away for such a fun event mid-week, a marathon mini-vacation of sorts!

The Random: 
I broke down and got timehop. I had fun seeing this pop up earlier in the week. My trademark photo is 7 years old!

The Fun:  
Fractions are SO fun, right? Well they are in my class. Week one into our fraction unit and I have fraction experts. We've learned while playing fraction bingo, exploring the fractions in our names, using fraction circles to create fractions from dominoes, playing dominoes, and more!

I wish every happiness to the young man.

Fractions sure do look fun in your class. Love the airplane views.

If you can take math and make it fun, you are a miracle worker. Your trip to Las Vegas is perhaps a few hours short of the perfect amount of time to visit there (unless you have family or friends there - then perhaps a little longer is in order).

I don't remember fractions being so much fun. We talked about pie but didn't get any!

Looked like a fun and quick trip to Vegas and for a great cause. You must be so proud.

That was a fast and furious trip, but glad you could go enjoy it for all it was worth!

I'm with you on they grow up so quick! Think of which I'd have a hard time remembering the fractions I learnt at school, obviously I was never taught fraction bingo, good on you!
Thanks for hosting

Timehop is a lot of fun! sometimes I don't like it because it's too nostalgic!
